We consider the stabilization of networked control systems with time-invariant clock offsets between the sensors and the controllers. Clock offsets are modeled as parametric uncertainty and we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a single controller that is capable of stabilizing the closed loop for every clock offset in a given range. For scalar systems, we obtain the maximum length of the offset interval for which the system can be stabilized by a single linear time-invariant controller. We compare the offset bounds that would be allowed by specific classes of controllers for scalar systems.
